Blacksmithing Courses

 

To become a proficient blacksmith takes a great deal of time and effort on behalf of the pupil. Not only to learn the basics but also to develop the skill necessary to use tools correctly and with a minimum of effort.

Our courses are designed to provide the basic knowledge sufficient to enable you to operate a small forge and to give you a taster of what it is like to be a blacksmith. We provide continuation training if you wish to progress, covering more advanced aspects of the blacksmiths art.

Our Basic Blacksmithing Course consists of five hours intensive training covering such topics as:

  • Fire Management
  • Hand eye coordination
  • Point Making
  • Basic Metallurgy
  • Tool Making using spring steel
  • Hardening and Tempering

The more adept should be able to produce a Rams Head Poker by the end of the course.

As our Smithy and workshop are a commercial operation during the week, courses are generally only run at the week-end when we can make full use of the facilities.
